    I dry herbs in my ‘frig. Put them on something like a plate so the dry, cold frig air can circulate around them. They keep their color, too. When dry, store in glss containers. Since my frig is lots bigger than I need, this works well for me. Then there is the freezer method. Freeze and cut off a frozen chunk & brew. And, yes, my freezer also has lots of room but herbs don’t take much room.

      I have actually done this before, but didn’t think of it when I was writing the post! Thanks for this reminder.

  4. I drink herb tea all the time, but I drink the kind that comes from the supermarket in tebags. I’ve never thought of making my own before, but you make it look so elegant!

      It really is quite fun. And just a few hours of gathering gives me enough to last the year. 🙂

  5. I love herbal tea also, Natasha. I’ve never tried clover or mixed my herbs, but I have used raspberry, strawberry, goldenrod, and mint. Catnip is my most consistent. I air dry them. I’m always looking for new herbs to use. Maybe we can share a cup someday. 🙂

        the place I lived before I got married had tons and tons of catnip. I’ve always regretted not digging up some and taking it with me!

        1. Oh my. It grows like weeds around here. I wonder if there are regulations against shipping it across state lines. Maybe I can keep some moist and send it to you for replanting. I’ll look into it.

  6. Love You Tasha and Brianna 🙂

  7. I loved reading this post and emailed it to my husband, since he planted a tea-garden this year {he’s becoming quite the evening tea drinker in his old age}. I’ve never liked tea, but the herbal teas are growing on me.

      My husband loves tea as well. I jokingly told him one day that his “love language” is making me tea when I’m feeling sick or sad or lonely. 🙂

  8. This was the neatest thing! I don’t know if I’m this adventurous. I’m… more likely to stick with my black tea bags from Wegmans. BUT. If I ever do decide to get all crazy with my tea, or if the economy collapses and I have to live from the land (Oh nooooosss) I may be upset about my general lack of Target merchandise, but at least I will know how to make my own tea!

    (PS. Which one is the caffeine weed? I need that one listed. Thanksomuch.)

      Ha! If you happen to find a caffeine weed, do let me know? 🙂
